The home office is giving £3.1m to organisations working with children who have been directly or indirectly affected by domestic abuse.
Recipients include Barnardo’s, Cambridgeshire County Council and Northumbria’s police and crime commissioner.
The government funding will pay for things such as early intervention schemes, and one-to-one and group counselling sessions to improve the youngsters’ mental health.
Minister for safeguarding Victoria Atkins said: “It is unacceptable that some children have to witness appalling abuse carried out in their home by those they should trust the most. This funding will go towards supporting these children, healing their emotional scars, and ensuring they can move forwards and have a positive future.”
The announcement was linked to the Domestic Abuse Bill passing its second reading in the House of Commons. The proposed legislation now goes for detailed debate at committee stage.
